A better look at the 2012 TL MMC

SPIED: 2012 Acura TL!

Today we've caught something that took even us by surprise. While Acura's TL has only been on sale since the 2009 model year, it appears Acura engineers are ALREADY prepping an update for the 2012 model. And an early '12, as we hear it may hit the dealerships in the first quarter of 2011!

The "Power Plenum" grille featured on the TL has been nothing short of controversial, and it appears that is where the bulk of the changes will occur on the updated TL. Given the instrumentation attached to this prototype, some modest powertrain updates may also be in the works such as replacing the current 5-speed auto transmission with Acura's newest 6-speed.
